006.ServiceBookAndHymnal

Hymn No 6 from the Lutheran Service Book and Hymnal, aka “Hark, The Glad Sound”, arranged for Soprano and Bass Clarinets.

DIE HELLE SONNE. C.M.
In moderate time
Sigmund Gottlieb Staden, 1605-55
Philip Doddridge, 1702-51

 

Here’s the pdf of the arrangement: 006.ServiceBookAndHymnal

Overdubbed 4 clarinets for each part, again playing soprano clarinet on the soprano and alto parts and bass clarinet on the tenor and bass parts, for a total of 16. I then applied the Audacity “Large Room” Reverb effect. There’s a “Church” and “Cathedral” effect, but they end up kind of quiet and very echo-ey. I finally remembered to mute the metronome track.

“Let every heart prepare a throne, And every voice a song.” is a fine sentiment, whether you are religious or not.
